Tim Flanders, RB, Sam Houston State: FCS Division


UDFA. Former transfer from Kansas State. Signed by Saints as UDFA but was released in August 2014. Does a lot of things well, but nothing exceptionally well. Could turn into a fair backup and part of a committee on some team.

All-Star Games: Shrine Game.

Positives: Adequate bulk, and solid for his height. Adequate hand size. Runs with adequate speed and quickness, with above-average burst. Has fairly quick feet and above-average cutback vision, and can change direction well, picking his way through traffic at line. Has the stamina and quickness to be able to stop and then get back up to speed quickly. Is patient, but also hits the hole decisively. Fair balance after contact, and also churns through contact well. Fairly reliable hands, with above-average body control and concentration on off-target passes – can adjust well. Adequate upper body strength.

Negatives: Short for the position. Poor track speed and overall lower-body explosiveness for the position and for his size at the Combine. Not much of a run blocker, and seems to lack the aggressiveness necessary. Tends to body catch.

Projection: Without a team, isn’t worth drafting. But keep an eye on where he lands because he may be worth picking up during the season.
